Manchester United’s Brazilian midfielder, Anderson enjoyed going through a very successful string of seasons during his earlier years when he performed with Gremio and Porto and his performances attracted the interest of Manchester United with the Premier League club willing to pay £18 million for a 19 years old player that had never played in a top and competitive league before.
In his debut season as a player of Manchester United, the young midfielder managed to make 24 appearances and went on to win the Premier League title with his new club.
Anderson continued earning more titles with Manchester United but his influence in the English club has been dropping with less and less appearances being made and his squad number was even given to Juan Mata as the Spanish midfielder received the No. 8 jersey.
The first and only appearance that Anderson has made in this season was during Manchester United’s 4-0 defeat against MK Dons when playing in the Capital One Cup and it does not look like the Brazilian will be getting a lot more time in the starting lineup of Louis van Gaal anytime soon taking into consideration all of the other reliable alternatives that the Dutch coach has at his disposal.
Manchester United will even allow Anderson to leave the club in the January transfer window and they are willing to listen to offers for the Brazilian midfielder but no offers have been made and this is due to the fact that no clubs are interested in having to match the current wages of Anderson as he receives €60,000 each week at Old Trafford and unless the player is ready to cut his wages down then it’s not very likely that any club is prepared to equal his elevated salary.
